The alterations in morphology and function of the ovarian follicle as it matures, ovulates, and becomes a corpus luteum are dramatic. A variety of steroid and polypeptide hormones influence these processes, and the ovary in turn produces specific hormonal signals for endocrine regulation. One such signal is inhibin, a heterodimeric protein that suppresses(More)
BACKGROUND Recent reports suggest that activation of adenosine monophosphate (AMP)-activated protein kinase (AMPK), in response to acute changes in cellular energy status in cardiac and skeletal muscles, results in altered substrate utilization. We hypothesized that chronic alterations in myocardial energetics in hypertrophied hearts (left ventricular(More)
Daily variations in serum concentrations of total and free corticosterone and corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG) were determined at 4 h intervals in male rats maintained on a 12:12 h light/dark cycle (lights on at 05.00 h). Total corticosterone concentrations exhibited a classical rhythm with peak values occurring at the onset of dark (17.00 h). Serum(More)
Cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of 31 newborn infants treated with venoarterial cardiopulmonary bypass for severe but reversible respiratory failure, revealed major focal parenchymal lesions in 7 of 31 infants (23%) and demonstrated abnormal enlargement of extra-axial and ventricular cerebrospinal fluid spaces in 16 of 31 (51%). No preferential(More)
PURPOSE The Scales of Cognitive and Communicative Ability for Neurorehabilitation (SCCAN; L. Milman & A. Holland, 2007) was developed in the hospital setting to address changes in assessment practice. The SCCAN was designed to provide an overview of impairment and activity limitations across 8 cognitive scales (Speech Comprehension, Oral Expression,(More)
